PSU for GTX 760 SLI (reference cards)

I'm looking at building a new rig soon and need a little advice in selecting a power supply.

Case: Corsair Obsidian 650D
CPU: AMD FX-8350
GPU: EVGA GTX 760 2GB in SLI
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 128GB
HDD: WD Caviar Blue 500GB
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3 1600Mhz
PSU: XFX Pro 750W 80+Gold

I plan on installing a custom water loop to my CPU and GPU's. I don't know what water pump or radiators I'll be using yet. I may get two 240 radiators with a total of 4 fans on them if I can manage the room inside of this particular case. Other than that I'll probably be using 2 of the case cans to cool the ambient air inside of the case.

I have read somewhere that either the "recommended" or "required" PSU is 700W for SLI of the GTX 760's. I already have a Corsair HX650 80 Plus Gold, but I doubt it's powerful enough.

What power supply would you suggest I get and why?

Thanks for the quick response! I like the looks of the XFX ProSeries and it's fully modular. This one will look pretty sweet with the theme I'm going for.

WOW! I see a lot of people asking about this. It's now wonder they keep selling out of these cards. I'm glad you shared this PSU with me and you actually own it. That makes me feel better in making my choice. I got it saved to my favorites until I can afford to buy it. I'm building my rig little by little.
